Connecticut is getting some local love and national attention with an upcoming episode of Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking. This PBS show, hosted by Pete Evans, features chefs who are the best of the best.  Pete Evans is not only one of Australia’s most popular chefs, he’s also a cookbook author, a host of many popular Australian shows, a surfer, a fisherman, and a successful restaurateur.  The first episode of Moveable Feast (there will be 13 total) will be on 9/7 with Thomas Douglas and Thierry Rautureau, the second will air on 9/15 and features Jeffrey Saad and Cortney Burns, and the third episode will feature three chefs whom you just might know. Yeah, no big deal at all, really. Just the living legend Jacques Pépin, and local and much loved celebrity chefs Bill Taibe of LeFarm and The Whelk as well as Tim LaBant of The Schoolhouse at Cannondale.

The episode featuring the holy trinity of culinary awesomeness was filmed right on Millstone Farm in Wilton on a very rainy June 7. In the episode you will see these three talented chefs working together to cook up some amazing dishes based on the bounty of Millstone Farm. After talking with each other, they decide to split up cooking and foraging duties.  Jacques Pépin uses eggs from heritage hens and creates a dish served in lettuce cups, Bill Taibe roasts a pork shoulder low and slow, and Tim LaBant finds baby turnips and greens to create a fennel fritter salad.  Also on the menu for that day is a Baby Carrot Salad and a Strawberry & Honey Buckle with Marsala Ice Cream.

Each dish was prepared right in the Millstone Farm Kitchen and you’ll be able to watch all the action by checking out Moveable Feast on PBS.  We have listed the first three showtimes for the local NY/CT PBS stations.  If you live somewhere else, just click here to check local listings.
